Guitariste et Chanteur US né Otis W. Maphis, le 12 Mai 1921 à Suffolk (Virginie). Joe Maphis a fait ses débuts en duo avec sa femme Rose (née Rose Lee Schetrompf, le 29/12/1922 à Baltimore (Maryland) à la fin des années quarante. Multi-instrumentiste super doué, il joua avec Larry Collins, Ricky Nelson, Tex Ritter et Wanda Jackson. Joe enregistra en solo chez Columbia Records et fut le pionnier de la guitare à double manche. Il était un chanteur régulier au Town Hall Party (KTTV, Compton, Californie). Joe Maphis décédé le 27 Juin 1986.

Joe and Rose Maphis were a popular husband-and-wife act in the late '40s and early '50s, singing traditional material backed by the amazing instrumental talent of Joe, who played everything with strings on it, especially the twin-neck guitar. The honky tonk anthem "Dim Lights, Thick Smoke (And Loud, Loud Music)" was their big hit. Until his death in 1986, Joe was a sessions instrumentalist, backing such stars as Larry Collins, Ricky Nelson, Tex Ritter, and Wanda Jackson.
